Firewatch – Stuttering

This guide will help to fix stuttering you may experience while playing the game on some configurations.

Stuttering Fix

The Issue

Micro/macro stuttering while walking or running. This is caused by the game running in borderless fullscreen, not exclusive fullscreen mode to benefit from more accurate timings and G-Sync or FreeSync.

The Solution

Add as a starting Steam parameter for the game (right mouse button over the game in your library, Properties > General tab: Set launch options):

  • -window-mode exclusive

Remember also to enable vsync in game options.

You can remove ‘Windows 7’ or ‘Disable full screen optimizations’ compatibility modes and don’t need to force the game in DX9.

Tested and working on Windows 10 Pro 1903
